Pretty Much Amazing described this Sleigh Bells’ song as a mix between Beyonce’s “Upgrade You” and Wavves “So Bored”. That’s all it took to get me interested. Turns out he was right on with that. This is extremely loud, hard hitting music, but it’s also pop. The results are fantastic, but I wouldn’t mind reducing the Wavves element a little. All you lo-fi heads who think anything is better with a little fuzz and a little (too much) distortion will get a kick out of this. To me, the song itself sounds sick, but I keep adjusting my speakers to try to make it sound more clear. Not happening.

I used to like lo-fi, but the more I listen to it, the more I realize that I would like these songs better if they didn’t sound like like they were recorded through a kazoo. But to some, I guess that is the appeal. Either way, I’m loving this one.
